J came to visit me! Yay! Way too short of a visit, but I took him over to the library, and we went to see Watchmen with most of my gaming group on Friday (AWESOME... various people around me have been hearing me talk about this since the plans for the movie were first announced). Saturday, I took him to see the ocean, followed by dinner with my parents. There was also an ill-fated attempt to drive into DC on Friday so he could poke through the Air and Space Museum gift shop, which ended with us not finding it and having to come back so we could get to dinner on time. At least he only wanted to see the gift shop and didn't have any interest in seeing, you know, the museum.
Even the sight of my stash didn't scare him off. :)
Anyway, on the knitting front:
I started the Whisper Cardigan from the spring 09 Interweave Knits. It's a very springy pattern, so I finally have an excuse to use this springy yellow-green yarn for something.
It's Misti Alpaca lace, but it's knit on size 7 needles. It gives a thin fabric that will be nice on those days where there's just a little bit of a chill in the air.
